We are really excited that Casserole Club has been featured in March’s issue of Red Magazine, one of our favourite lifestyle magazines!
In a beautiful double page spread, journalist Natasha Lunn meets with our fabulous Cook Oruj and her lovely Diner Munna who have been sharing meals through Casserole since last year.
Here’s a sneek preview of the article to whet your appetite:
“Sharing food is, and always has been, a bonding experience. And as warm, spicy smells of vegetable stew waft around the room, the sociable and inclusive mood is infectious.
An hour into my visit, I realise the food on the table is just an incidental extra. For Munna, the benefits are obvious: something to look forward to, some company and, most importantly, ‘a chance to laugh’. I sense that she, like so many other elderly people, has stark moments of loneliness.”
The heartwarming story goes on to explain how Munna and Oruj (and her children) have become really good friends through Casserole Club, showing that there’s much more to a Cook and Diner’s relationship than just sharing food.
